MATT DILLON TO STAR IN VON TRIER'S LASTEST FILM

The-House-that-Jack-Built

Lars Von Trier has cast the always-terrific Matt Dillon in his 15th film "The House That Jack Built." Dillon will share leading man duties with Bruno Ganz. These two equally matched actors will film Von Trier's in Trollhättan, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark.

Von Trier describes the film as follows, "USA in the 1970s. We follow the highly intelligent Jack over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack's point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork. Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations. The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale."

Matt-dillon

Although unconfirmed, it seems likely that Ganz will play the serial killer, but it may very well be the younger Dillon who dons the mask of the '70s era psychopath. Jack the Ripper is getting some serious competition.
